It was an absolute whirlwind of excitement and discovery! From the bustling streets of Hanoi to the ancient wonders of Angkor Wat, each day brought new adventures and unforgettable memories. We cycled through the charming villages of Hoi An, cruised along the Mekong Delta, and witnessed the stunning sunrise over Halong Bay's limestone karsts. The tour's well-planned itinerary allowed us to delve deep into the cultures and histories of both countries.
